I was invited to Nosh – Machiners’ Paradise for a Bloggers Meet by Zomato, very interestingly titled ‘Blog Appetite’. The decor is not just interesting but definitely unique too. They have super luxury automobiles adorning the place, and hence is sure to attract many. Also, the mean machines are changed fortnightly to add to the surprise element and not become mundane to regulars. The decor has been designed around that, and wonderfully so.
We chose to sit indoors, though they have very cozy outdoor seating options too, one of them being an oscillating carriage of sorts. (As soon as I saw that, I mentally made a note to sit there, next time I visit.)
Coming to the food, the Mai ka Lal Nachos were some of the best nachos in town, loaded with loads of molten, gooey cheese. Their family garlic bread was good too, and seasoned well. Well, garlic and bread are two of my favorite things, and taken together they anyway make a really good pair.
The Stuffed Mushroom was phenomenal, and my favorite plate that evening. The rustic presentation in the skillet, was pretty interesting too. Big, bold button mushrooms, in their oh, so smooth texture, tasted truly divine.
The Chicken Skewers were well made and juicy, and had a good balance of spices, but fish fingers scored above them.
The Chicken Wings were coated in a sticky, sweet-salty glaze, and was one of those things you wouldn’t mind getting your fingers dirty for.
The Khujliwala Burger looked really tempting, but I had some issues with the patty itself, and the burger a
s a whole was dry. Wasn’t a fan of it, and this one really needed some changes.
The Baigan Bharta Sandwich was again pretty good, with smoky aubergine filling inside crispy, buttery, grilled bread. In fact, me being a pure non-vegetarian, found this one more intriguing than the chicken version of it.
The pastas were not bad either, but by the time we reached them, I didn’t have too much tummy space to accommodate them.
Now, dessert is a part of the meal that most of us look forward to, but sadly, their menu only had variation of chocolatey things. So those who are craving for some fruity, tangy ending, can opt for some of their mocktails.
Ooh, yes! They have a big list of mocktails, and I tried quite a few of them. Most of them were pretty well mixed, and were the perfect accompaniment for the food served.
The host Siddhant, being the gracious man that he is, gave us a tour of the place and also assured me of adding variety to their dessert menu. In all, this was a lovely evening, with fellow bloggers, over some good food.
